#weight loss and healthy foods, food supplements multivitamin

This week we continue our journey in weight loss, talking about selecting healthy foods. The single biggest reason why so many Americans are overweight and sick is because we are eating refined and processed foods. These foods are lacking in vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other phytonutrients the body is looking to obtain from food. When we eat these foods, we must be getting enough calories, but we still feel hungry because the body is still looking for the nutrition it needs.

Refined sugars (sucrose, high fructose corn syrup, fructose, etc.) white flour, polished rice, processed vegetable oils, margarine, shortening and just about all processed and packaged foods fall into this category. If you want to lose weight and be healthy, you must start eliminating these foods from your diet and replace them with whole, natural, nutrient-rich, unprocessed foods. When you do so, your body will get the nutrients it needs and stop telling you it is hungry.

Of course, if you focus on the negative, what you shouldn’t be eating, you’ll never succeed. The way to succeed is to start incorporating more whole, natural foods into your diet. Eat plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits with a greater emphasis on vegetables that are not starchy. Choose good sources of protein for your blood type and eat high-quality protein and vegetables as your primary food source. Go easy on grains (breads, pastas, etc.) and only use whole grains when you do eat grains. Eat high-quality fats, too. Eat the foods that are good for you first, and your body will start craving the good foods while your desire for the “junk” foods will diminish. There are flower essences and food enzymes that you may find helpful in creating new patterns for eating and to help you get the most out of the food you eat. Next week we will look at the importance of balanced meals on a regular basis and getting physically active.

Wishing you health in body, soul, and spirit.
